* The [[GoldFever Gold Rush]] era folk-song "Sweet Betsy From Pike" tells the story of the titular woman and her husband Ike traveling to California. They survive numerous hardships, almost starve, fend off hostile Indians and successfully arrive... only in the last verse to get a divorce.

* The ''Music/FlightOfTheConchords'' series ends with Bret, Jemaine, and Murray all deported back to New Zealand after it comes to light that they're illegal immigrants, where Bret and Jemaine resume their old jobs as shepherds. Though they're still able to make music without the added pressure of having to make money off of it.

** In ''Tindharia no Tane'', [[spoiler: the heroine Parsley ends up giving up her life to change the laws that rule the world, while main character, Salt, is left behind taking care for the world she left behind]].
** In ''Griotte no Nemurihime'' [[spoiler: one of the twins that serve as main characters to the story, Rosa, is absorbed into a song that makes her disappear forever. The story ends with the main characters throwing into the sea a crystal that contained her final song, which expressed her feelings for her sister, Citra.]]
** And finally, in ''Koboreru Suna no ARIA'', which serves as a prequel to Griotte no Nemurihime, [[spoiler: the heroine Seshiara is forced to sing for years in an attempt to restore the weakened sunlight, until the point in which she falls dead from exhaustion. Her husband Forgeit learns about this much later, and this causes him to become crazy and turn into the antagonist for Griotte. The finale of the album shows Forgeit dying as apparently, Seshiara's spirit comes to take him to the afterlife. Unfortunately, both were [[DoomedByCanon doomed by the canon]]...]]

* Music/{{Vocaloid}} producer Music/{{mothy}}'s "Kept Waiting for a Response" might not be canon to the ''[[Franchise/EvilliousChronicles Story of Evil]]'', but as [[WhatCouldHaveBeen one of the endings mothy originally had in mind]] and closely tied to what he eventually went with it certainly qualifies. [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Riliane]] fully regrets her actions, is redeemed and dies a happy death among the children she raised in an orphanage, but her twin Allen and many other people died because of her and in the end, she can't really get her one last wish- she wishes to have a response to a letter she sent years ago... [[spoiler: but the letter was to the already dead Allen and she knows that, even as a boy gives her a fake reply and she smiles and thanks him.]]
